    I thought it would good idea to set up a thread for people to volunteer their services as a beta.

    Anyone who wants to do this should post something like this:

    Name:
    Pairings you beta:
    Beta specialty: i.e. grammer, tense, flow, character, etc

    Yeah, I could use some beta help. Great Idea!
    I write Slash stories though. (starring either Nick & Greg or Grissom & Greg)

    I have written my first Greg/Grissom story but I would love for someone to beta it for me just to be sure the grammer, spacing, and story concept are OK. It's rated NC-17. So I can't post it here or link to it but...PM is OK.

    OK Nevermind, I found someone.

    Name: Crysthala. <bonks on the head with Daedric Warhammer of Obviousness>
    Pairings you beta: All of them... except for things involving Ecklie and Sofia.
    Beta specialty: grammar (notice the A as opposed to the E ;)), flow, spelling, general savoryness.
    Yeah, just send it to me in a PM or e-mail it to me, and I'll do my best. It doesn't necessarily have to be for here; I can beta pretty much anything you like. So yeah. Yay. Things to read :)

    Name: Dee
    Pairing: Anything as long as it's LV I don't know enough about the others to be much help. (I do lean towards
    Warrick involved fics, but not limited to)

    Speciality: lil bit of it all

    I don't have any fanfic ideas of my own, so I'm bored and willing to help others. PM or email me!

    Pairing: Uh, Nick and Sara. I've never really focused on the other characters. I could help if they are in supporting roles, but not if they are pushed to the front.

    Specialty: Grammer, tense, flow, I think I could do a good job on helping the author to keep the characters in character.

    Feel free to PM me if anyone is interested.

    Thank you for pointing out that my avatar can be used to inspire other things besides inappropriate fantasies. I think I now have a plot for my next fanfiction. (includes half-naked Warrick wielding a sword! ;) )

    Yay! ^.^
    How to tell if you're an optimist:
    You see iwantboromir's avatar and say he's half-naked. If you're a pessimist, you'd say it's the wrong half. ;) :devil:

    Crysthala you're evil...me likes :devil:!

    About the beta thing though, I'm always up for it.

    The name's Ashley, and I love Cath/War, Gris/Lady H, Sandle and Snickers especially, but I'll beta just about anything (except slash, sorry).

    Specialties: I do it all. From spelling errors, to characterization, to fact checking, I'm ready, willing and experienced.

    Feel free to hit me up in a PM or via my email (in profile).

    Is there anyone who's good at Mac and Mac/Stella? Discussions in the NY thread have inspired me and I've written the first of a series of ficlets. Warning though the first one is extremely dark and angsty.
